Adobe Unveils Digital Publishing Platform for Interactive Magazines

Adobe introduced its digital publishing platform for InDesign CS5 on Tuesday for creating digital versions of magazines for the iPad and other electronic devices. Adobe’s digital publishing platform and digital viewer software were used to create the just released iPad version of Wired Magazine.

The new tools let publishers include 360 degree interactive images, embedded videos and slideshows, support for including ads in publications, and more.

In addition to iPad support, the digital publishing platform supports authoring for smartphones and other tablet devices.

The tools aren’t publicly available yet, but Adobe plans to release them through its Adobe Labs Web site in the near future.
